So I bought the guitar in the video down there by accident. By that I mean that I saw it on Ebay and wondered how much people thought it would be worth being a not really Goya. So I put up 75 bucks. And no one else put up any more than that. Now I'm guessing it was because the listing said that there was a bridge pin broken and stuck in the bridge. Maybe. I got it. It arrived today and it took me ten minutes to drill the thing out. The strings were really old and dirty and I put a set of Martin 12's 10 on the high E. Before that I oiled the fret board and cleaned out the inside and waxed the whole thing. It sounds really great. Now I don't want you to think I'm getting carried away. You know I have too many guitar (I suppose that's true). I have three other 12's. An EKO. A Guild and a real Swedish Goya. This equals them. Even challenges the Guild. I believe it is a solid top. I did that oil the inside of the soundhole thing and it seems that grain is very visible. So this quite a guitar. It isn't really a Goya buy it does no disrespect to the name.

Just wrote this to Guild. make nice guitars and they have the name Guild on them but they are not really Guild as the only tradition being followed is the Logo and the model numbers. I mean...who is the next owner going to be? Guild - Fender - Cordoba....Mattel??

No. I work in the Library but I have been writing one way or another for years. I even had a column in Philadelphia for quite some quite some time ago in first a paper called The Welcomat and then in the Philadelphia City Paper. Thank you again for your kind words. It is why I am more of a lyricist then a complete songwriter. But I get by on minimal melodies.
